This is where the Sumida River borders both Arakawa City (on the south side) and Adachi City (north). It is a bit out of the way but it is a nice and quiet walk.

A nice thing to do after visiting Asakusa and Tokyo Skytree is to walk south along the Sumida River. It is possible to go all the way to Tokyo Bay on foot (for example, ending at Harumi Passenger Ship Terminal). In this post, I stopped at Tsukiji, after making a detour by Tsukishima Island, where the Sumida River forks into 2 channels before reaching Tokyo Bay.

The Sumida River (隅田川; Sumida-gawa) is a river in eastern Tokyo that starts at the Iwabuchi Sluice Gate in Kita and flows into Tokyo Bay. There is a walkway along its bank almost everywhere along the way. Here are photos of the walk starting from Asakusa and going north to Minami-Senju, in Arakawa City.

When I was there, there was a huge line (even before noon).
